I went to post a question on Stack Overflow and provided a code block of GraphQL code. I tried doing something like:

```gql ... ```


```graphql ... ```

to get some syntax highlighting and didn't get anything. Is it possible to add this to the WYSIWYG editor?

GraphQL isn't on the list of supported languages.

The project couldn't find a maintainer, so support was dropped:

" joshgoebel commented on Feb 17
Closing this issue for lack of activity. Any one who'd like to take what's here and step up and contribute a 3rd party language grammar, that would be awesome. :-)"

Stack Exchange won't add it until the project adds support for it.

    @triplethreat78, with over 13 thousand uses of the tag on Stack Overflow you could ask on their meta (which has no prior questions raised) if someone is interested in becoming a maintainer at GitHub; then once it's supported upstream you can ask here for a status-review and with all the plumbing in place it should Just Work™.

  • I don't think SE currently wishes to use 3rd party grammars though, so that is a bummer. meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/402607/… Feb 15, 2021 at 17:44
